Sergei gained his BA in Mathematics in 1996 from Cambridge
University and his PhD Conic Structures in Differential Geometry in
2000, from the University of Glasgow. He started his research in
Solar Physics by working on solar feature recognition algorithms
for European Grid of Solar Observations, moving to local
helioseismology research at Sheffield University with Prof.
M.J.Thompson in 2005. He joined the Solar Physics group at Mullard
Space Science Laboratory, UCL in 2009 where he has worked on the
detection and physics of sun-quakes. He was appointed as a lecturer
at the School of Mathematics & Physical Sciences
at the University of Hull in 2013.

I use helioseismology and feature recognition to study solar
magnetism via observing changes in wave behaviour on the solar
surface and in the atmosphere to infer the properties of underlying
plasma, together with detecting and analysing the series of Sun's
magnetic features such as sunspots and active regions. My other
research interests are computer vision, topological methods in
hydrodynamics and MHD and solar dynamo.
